Serve Beer & Cheese at your BBQ Party!
How to pair Beer & Cheese
A rich cheese can handle a stronger beer and a higher alcohol percentage. A full-bodied, matured cheese often goes well with heavier beer types, like pale lager, brown ales or even stouts. You might also give a heavy barley wine a try.
As a late night snack or maybe even an appetizer we suggest pairing a Brown Ale with Castello Matured Cheddar, pickled apricots and salted pistachios.
Mild cheeses go well with mild beers. A beer should never stifle the cheese with alcohol, strong flavours or a lot of hops.
For our Castello Creamy White we picked a Belgian Saison - serve it as an appetizer with grilled white asparagus, lemon, parsley and parma ham.
Sharp blue cheeses can handle a heavy black stout, which can otherwise easily smother other flavours. Heavy, fruity beers also go well with blue cheeses. Hoppy beers tend to take the edge off blue cheese and bring out their floral notes and acidity.
As a perfect fit for Castello Creamy Blue we chose English Barley Wine. Serve it with grilled pineapple and walnuts and you are in for a treat!
When you begin exploring the pairing of beer with cheese, a world of experiences awaits. And surprises as well. So experiment and find out what suits your personal tastes. Do you like the cheese and beer to taste similar? Or do you prefer divergent flavours that complement each other? Both can be quite delicious.
